MN River shore fishing

2 posts in this topic

Hey all.

I'm New to posting here. I'm also new to flathead fishing. Just wondering in general where are the spots one should NOT fish.

I mostly fish alone, and have fished in some odd places.

I fished a couple of spots late in the night on the MN river last week that freaked me out a bit. The spots were a good 15-20 minute hike away from roads and other people. The access spot was loaded with gang graffitti and looked to be a pretty well used party spot. If the stretch of water didn't look so dang fishy I would have never stopped.

Any problem areas?

Also, I was hoping to go back to some of the spots I have seen on blackdog road. Is that place still full of wierdos and cops? I Don't mind the cops one bit, just don't want to be caught in the middle of anything, if ya know what I mean.

Thanks for any ideas, Eric

Welcome to FM erickol! Black Dog is frequently visited by squad cars (thanks for that). They will log your fishing license, at the most. I'm planning on being there Mon morning. Nights were slow lately. But I know this area holds some big hogs. Fishing from shore simply makes it a bit more challenging. But where would we be without a challenge? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
